Master Blending Session with Jean Hoefliger and Claire Richardson
His canvas has expanded from Napa Valley to Switzerland and even Texas as a consulting winemaker, extracting the essence of the terroir to create a wine that resonates with the locale's spirit. Flaunting a glittering array of accolades - multiple 100-point wines and endless 90-point listings - Jean's status in the oenological realm remains without question. Jean has served as a winemaking consultant for Uplift since our inaugural 2020 vintage. His tireless pursuit of perfection, coupled with his ability to harmonize nature's bounty into world-class wines, is a vivid testament to his expansive knowledge and fervor for winemaking.
Today, as the head winemaker for Uplift since its coveted inaugural 2020 vintage, Claire brings an innovative and audacious approach to her craft. Richly influenced by her varied experiences, from the tranquil vineyards of Marlborough to the stunning landscapes of Waiheke Island, her wines carry whispers of these diverse terroirs. She is a vibrant advocate for Texas, ardently believing in its potential to rise as one of the world's premier wine-growing regions. Her indomitable spirit and pioneering methods have already made an indelible impact on Uplift, with her 2020 Aglianico garnering a 91-point score and clinching the esteemed silver medal at the 2023 Decanter World Wine Awards. Claire's story continues to unfold, one Uplift vintage at a time.
